Panasonic and eight other companies are putting forward a plan to build the green town of the future in Japan.  Seems pretty awesome:

Japan may still be recovering from earthquake-related woes, but that’s  not stopping Panasonic and eight partner companies from pushing ahead  with their own rebuilding effort that could reshape the way future  cities and towns are built. Part demonstration initiative and part  reclamation project, Panasonic and friends are turning the footprint of   one of the company’s former factory sites into a 47-acre, 1,000-home “smart  town” with energy- and eco-conscious considerations leading the  development.

The goal is to get a bunch of green technologies working together in the same place, and see just how much can be done in terms of energy savings.
